Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa laments the kerfuffle over her Vegas plans and Adrienne's shoes.

on Nov 30, 20110

Oh it seems like the only time there seems to be any fun lately is when I am planning my daughter's wedding! The gorgeous little white boxes have been chosen. The caterers are amazing, and I am well aware they can produce an excellent culinary adventure, Kevin Lee is going to drive me to distraction slowly but surely. . .but I persevere, assured that he will create a wedding like no other. Watch this space.

I have to address the situation with Russell and Taylor. Even though I was not a fan of Russell at the time because of the information that was given to me by Taylor, I find it truly heartbreaking to witness their struggles in their relationship, that were obviously so difficult. I, contrary to what many of you have proclaimed, am happy that I could actually support Taylor in the difficult time she was going through. It is truly hard for us all to watch now. My heart goes out to Taylor and their family.

On a lighter note, the next day, Mohammed came over and off we go to Adrienne's fashion show. As we enter the house, Adrienne summons me to have a word with her. I was a little taken aback as we had only just arrived and had no idea of what was about to transpire. Apparently she was miffed that Pandora had decided to hold her bachelorette party at our old family friend Robert Earl’s venue, Planet Hollywood. Robert loves her and had no intention of promoting the hotel. I mean, how dare my daughter choose what she wants? She should be supporting her mother's neighbor’s business! I seriously couldn't understand this. It was the first I knew of her being upset. Jason had had his bachelor party a couple of weeks before, hosted by our friend, and Pandora was going to do the same. It was all arranged. I wasn't going and hadn't been involved in the arrangements. It seems like a dangerous slope to venture into. I knew nothing., I didn't want to even really hear the tales afterwards, as I think there are certain times and adventures one doesn't need their mother to witness, and I had assured Pandora this was one of them.

I watch this show only from time to time and Lisa" seems to be the only genuine person in the group of ladies on the show and a busy working woman, wife and mother. Last show i watched as Lisa was blindsided by Adrienne twice. The first when she told Lisa that she should have had her daughters pre-wedding party at the Palms Hotel and Lisa said this is my daughters choice. (I can understand that a young girl wanting to have her party at the "Hard Rock" instead of the Palms, my son would...Where is the Palms anyway? I've traveled to Vegas many times and know the better hotels. The Palms is an old hotel and understandable they need bookings.).

Now the only reason I'm taking time to write about this ( I do not usually comment on these sites as I'm sure I will get unnecessary emails to my account but)...is along with calling Lisa out on the hotel in Vegas (and Andrienne and the Chef making fun of Lisa not liking max & cheese) she also charged that Lisa sold a story to whatever that rag" is, Radar Online. I am glad that Lisa was able to talk about this and explain that she would never do anything like that but just the charge is an insult!...I think A. must still be upset about the hotel thing!

This just shows what a pathetic and petty person Adrienne is and has nothing else to do but tear down friends...(Oh, I guess it keeps the show interesting) Oh correction, I see she is now selling shoes! What talent does she have in this area?...Is she a designer? Some company is giving her money to push their shoes and sell them with her name/label on them, letting her design a few to keep her honest...To me this is just as bad as selling a story to a gossip magazine. Just selling yourself to make money!!! But I am glad she is trying to do something useful. Why not go to design school?This may help her as most of her shoes look like the current everyday styles you see around the discount stores?

Lisa,

I too love the color pink, and I would like to know where you found your pink IPad case? I have looked at so many places but nothing seems well made.

Thanks, Sandy

Lisa,

I only want to say one thing to you that may not have anything to do with what this blog is about but I just want you to know----I LOVE THE WAY YOU IMITATE KIM'S VOICE, IT IS THE BEST!! EVERY TIME I HEAR YOU I CRACK UP. YOU ARE SO COOL. LOVE YOU.

Lisa, one of the major topics of conversation between my sister and myself is your show. We live a thousand miles away from each other and talk on the phone most days. We both adore you and Ken and your kids. In 1990 I went through a divorce with a man who was a neanderthal, the real missing link. I started seeing a therapist prior to filing and continued to see the therapist over the next decade. One of the first things I came to realize is that no one makes you feel anything. The way in which any individual chooses to react to anything is a choice we make. WE are not victims, and we do attract to us what we put out to the Universe. What goes around comes around. If any apologizing needs to be done, it's Taylor who needs to take a long, long look at her own behavior, and choose to see how her behavior has affected everyone in her life. Regardless of what the truth was in her marriage to Russell, may he RIP!, she chose to talk about it to everyone, she chose to stay placing her daughter in harm's way if what she was talking about is true. Camille has been through the war the past year and It is so good to see you have her back. Hope you still do. I don't think she did anything wrong, When she told Taylor she needed to be honest, I was cheered! There is no excuse for bad behavior and she was downright mean to you in your home. Her overwhelming desire to coerce the others to trash you at the Tea Party was so transparent. It had nothing to do with being honest, and everything to do with her jealous feeling for you and the need to hurt you at any cost. If people were on the fence about her I'd think they probably aren't any longer after that episode. She was so mean spirited. It was sad. She wanted to get the others to dump on you and to their credit, they didn't. Most everything she said was bullshit, and she twisted everything you said to ensure she came off as the poor, poor victim. To top it off, at Brandi's party, when Brandi asked Taylor to leave she turned on Brandi and more or less refused to respect the fact that for all intents and purposes, it was her home. Kyle made a complete ass of herself by treating Brandi the same as Taylor. Kyle should be ashamed of herself. Her behavior this year has been more than abhorrent. I find that very disappointing. Hang in, you are the best and if I had the opportunity to meet any of the housewives, you'd be my choice. Love ya, Girl! We've all got your back! Hugs to the Jigster! and...Ken!

lisa, are you currently still "close" with "taylor?" trust your instincts... she is not what she claims to be. please don't become another one of her victims.

Lisa you are the one person that is of any interest at all on this show-wait I really think Brandi is pretty down to earth and honest with herself-but you are the show stopper. Looking at the previous comments I do think Kyle leaves out pieces of information when she reports to you what is going on and perhaps you should just ignore anything you hear and half of what you see.

I can appreciate the fact that Adrienne came to you directly to express her concerns. However the situation unfolded, I can see Adrienne's point but Pandora is truly blessed to have all these wonderful people fussing over wanting to make her day so special. As you've said it so eloquently before, "sort it out" with the ladies after you've gotten your daughter hitched.

Adrienne was out of line to speak to you about where your daughter held her bachelorette party, or to be offended by it. A friend offered to host it, end of story. She is mixing business with friendship...huge mistake...she should apologize for even suggesting some kind of disloyalty on your part for accepting a friends gift to your daughter. My only advice to you, is don't listen to gossip about others, when people spread gossip they usually have their own agenda.

Lisa. Please learn from what happened with Cedric, Taylor is not a good person. It has been reported that she is a con artist! Please how many names does she have? And after her comment to Taylor (another untrustworthy fight cat) about "What you did to Cedric." How can you forget that? She went around letting people think that she was a Ford. Why? Maybe to milk them out of money? It seems like she went to all the girls saying she was being abused to feel out with one would take her in, if her husband went broke. If you listen to the conversation between Taylor and Russel in the limo, Russel believes that Camille lied about the both of them. He has no idea that Taylor told all the girls she was being abused. It just seems too fishy! I believe Taylor got upset with Camille for talking about the abuse. She didn't want her husband to know what she was plotting. She just may not have been being abused. She may have seen the writing on the wall and knew all her and Russel's scams were coming out! If it is true about Russel and Taylor conning money out of people, what makes her any different from the men and woman that have been jailed for the very same thing?

Lisa! I really am just starting to think people don't get your sense of humor. You may be a bit too straight forward for the people in Beverly Hills. Either way, you are a pleasure to watch, I can tell you sincerely care about others, and its obvious you never meant any harm to Taylor. Please stay you 100% and know there are plenty of fans who get you! BTW I'm still tickled by the Maloof Hoof. LOL! Love you Lisa!!! - Tiffany from Atlanta

Lisa, Don't enable Taylor by telling her what she wants to hear, tell her the truth about her behavior, and the way she's treated Camille.

Response to omgcommentchik;

Please read what you posted , and see how small minded and malicious it is. You clearly have some kind of issue with Lisa that exists, not because of who she is, but because you are a HATER!

Lisa,

I love you and Giggy so much!!! I don't see Giggy on this season and I would love to see him more.

I really wish you and your family's best. Have a wonderful holiday!!!

If I ever lose my grip on reality, I will take a lesson from you, Lisa. Class and grace all the way. Sur Lounge is gorgeous and always packed (and you were so right about the placement of the bathroom door...). Congrats on Sur and your Vanderpump!

Lisa, I love that you are genuine, you are absolutely beautiful. I saw you when you were here in PA on the 10 show giving tips on hosting. Anyway, please, please stay away from the drama during the next season. I know that what we are watching currently was filmed months ago. I can only thank God that you had your daughters wedding to plan cause I'm sure that you would have been sucked into all the drama. I know that you had good intentions when you were trying to offer your help to Taylor, she was wrong for twisting your words and making herself a victim. As for where Pandora's bridal party was, it was her decision, not yours or Adrienne's. Shame on Adrienne for bringing that up to you, she should know that every Bride has the right to pick and choose what will happen on and before days leading to her wedding.

One more thing, I think everyone on your show is a little jealous of you in their own way. With people like that in your life, you really need to watch your back..You are wondeful, beautiful, and successful, people should be happy for you.... but it takes a special person to know that envy is wrong, evil and is too time consuming.

Happy Holidays to you and your entire family and could you please give Giggy a kiss for me.

Lisa......a wise friend once said to me: "There are no victims'....only volunteers". lovely words...and so profound. you and your delightful family do not deserve these trashy women.....not including Camille....she is your only peer. So excited for you and Ken.... It won't be long until you are blessed with gorgeous grandchildren!! howled at all my friends....who refused to be called Grandma.... When my turn came two years ago??? granny smith....who absolutely adores Lisa.

I realy enjoy the part you play in this show. I would like to know why would someone with your class want or need to expose yourself to these ladies, yo don't need the money or drama those other ladies bring. The saying goes birds of a feather fly together. I wish nothing but the best for you & your family, Happy holidays!

Hi Lisa I think that you and Adrienne are the best of the best of all the housewives. You two crack me up, as I told my own daughter one day people who truly have money don't have to flaunt it, they work hard and careful with their money. You and Adrienne are pure class in my book, and make this show enjoyable because I am done with the rest of the Housewives series except Hollywood because you make it so enjoyable and I think this is what they had in mind when it first started, but it turn into just a big cat fight, I do think it is time to get rid of the Richard sisters and Taylor.

Lisa Dear - Why are you on this show???? It looks like hell for rich people??? I would miss watching you (because you are the only reason I watch) but wish the best for you. This show and this shoddy circle of friends is not what is best for you.

Only a few words, here Lisa. Stay far, far away from Kyle. She always feeds you the twisted information, nothing accurate, and the strangest thing is you fall for her crap manipulation every time. The other NO N O is Taylor. she is bad news, alternating between beging the nasty aggressor and the whining victim, totally non-trustworthly. Your weakness is you believe Kyle for everything she tells you. She even misleads you to go to the Bachelorette Party even when your first instinct was correct, to stay out of it, and let it be the party for the young ones.

You need to have a better discerning sense when it comes to selecting friends. Although you are adorabel, this is your obvious weakness. First it's Cedric, then Kyle, then Taylor. Stay away from the fraud friends, Lisa.

Dearest Lisa, I love your cute sense of humor. I crack up at your expressions and the so elegant way you poke fun at the exact same things I poke fun at. You have eyes that smile with every quip. You're such a joy to watch. You've got style and grace. Always a lady. Both you and Ken so open and honest. I so enjoy the show because of you. You're the silver lining in a dark cloud. You may be spoiled, but you're marrrrvelous at it. Adore you. You keep some sophistication in the show. Big Hugs to you and yours.

Lisa, You are a WONDERFUL person! You are beautiful inside and out, classy, trustworthy, fun to be around, successful, loyal. Your husband Ken is my favorite among the men on the show. He is such a nice man. No wonder you guys have so many good friends. That really says a lot. I haven't seen Adrienne and Paul surrounded by loyal friends.

Lisa, get over yourself. Would you rather have had Adrienne complain about you behind your back? She's a real class act and approached you face to face, so you would know how she felt about the issue. It's called openness and honesty - and is quite common among friends. Of course it's totally normal for you to have felt as though asking her would be an imposition, and that it was Pandora's choice at the end of the day, (or was it really if there was only one option for a venue?). In any case, don't your friends have that line of access to you whereby they can tell you how they honestly feel? Or would you rather have sycophants for friends who kiss your ass (Kyle in Season 1), or grovel at your feet (Taylor) or lap up every word you say (Dana)? I find your personality quite annoying this season.

Lisa, my favorite part of the whole episode was when you and Ken were in you beautiful restaurant talking about the bj's at Brandi's party. You and Ken could have your own show.....just love you both.

Lisa,

You're completely right!! It's none of Adrienne's business where your daughter has her party. You don't have to justify yourself to anyone. She is completely out of line.

Lisa I adore you. Your daughters wedding comes first and all this drama can wait. About having the Bachlorette party its really up to your daughter not you or Adrienne, sorry Adrienne I love you but the truth hurts. Being with all the people that love you is the most important thing in the world, and that is the day for this. Lisa keep smiling and laughing you and your husband are great people and you make this show what it is about Beverly Hills not the Ghetto like Taylor and Brandi well the only one that gets on my nerves is Taylor. I've been in alcoholic,abusive family until i turned 26 yrs and I've never acted like that, but of course I didn't have a camera in front of me. I prayed alot and went to counseling, Had many great friends and my mother is awesome she never yelled at people and acted stupid. Being abused is hard and tough enough. Lisa enough of this negativity. Your are awesome and you make me smile. just keep having your lavish parties and I will come in spirit. Happy Holidays.

I just don't get it. You are one of the very few mature and intelligent individuals on the show and yet you let the worst of the worst continue to drag you into their dramas. Kyle and Kim are nasty and Taylor is certifiable and should be heavily medicated in a padded room. Your daughter appears to have a clearer picture of your "friends" than you do.

I watch this show because it is one of the "reality" shows that my students chose for a sociology class I teach. I honestly just don't get it (I do...), but your sense of humor and quick witted comments do make me laugh -- please don't stop!

Lisa, do you ever think outside of yourself - Or when you do, is that just for show? Because everything you do seem to care about, seems very trivial in the true scope of life.. Be it your pink colors; The however many restaurants you have, and continuously mention; A wedding you never had, so now are trying to live vicariously through Pandora, by stealing her day; You're dog and everywhere you bring it, that is a visual nuisance already. Be appropriate - and apply the etiquette rules to yourself. For one, leave your hairy dog at home where it belongs, and secondly, take some advice for a change instead of always dishing it out (when not asked), as if you're some authority. Which I don't think so though, being you only true claim to fame is Jiggy.

Once again Lisa, you were given incorrect information by Kyle to make Brandi look bad. Brandi was joking about the blo job instructer, and she told Kyle that. Of course Kyle didn't tell you that the were having belly dancers did she....wonder why.

Hi Lisa, You are so adorable, and very down to earth!....I like to watch the show because you and your family are so cute together. I also admired your strenght when have to Deal with Taylor (a mentally disturbed woman) who do not have nothing to do but create drama!!!...please be careful because another TRASHY person as Taylor is Kyle!!!...I meant, we all hear her "I WISH I HAVE THIS OR THAT"!...so she is TOTALLY jealous of you, so be careful!!!! Taylor and Kyle are two who are coming from TRAILER LAND!!....anyway, just want to tell you LISA TEAM!!!! :)

You are my favorite housewife ever. You're the epitome of honesty, class and humor combined into the package of a LADY.

The rest of the group (save Camille) is a bunch of backstabbing feral cats. They are so hateful to each other! It's a sad display of women with too much money, too much time and not enough ambition to direct their energy into making something of themselves.

Stay away from those women Lisa! You are too good to be around them.

Hi Lisa! Just wanted to give a shout out from WEHO! I'm a stand up comic, so appreciate your sarcasm. I stumbled onto this site and thought I'd share a comment with you. (and Adrienne) We can't stand the rest of the drama queens. Just wanted you to know that we LOVE your restaurant on Robertson, SUR- and went there several times before we knew you. Also, because you were my favorite housewife last year, my girlfriend took me to dinner at Villa Blanca for my birthday. Too bad I didn't see you. :( Anyway, we enjoyed it and the restaurant is very nice. We always love the fresh flowers you have in your house and you always look impeccable. Don't worry about all the sh*t everyone is giving you. You're a self made woman. Cheers! -from a lesbian in WEHO. XO

Lisa, Your act of generosity was lost on Taylor. Is that her real name? Friendship is not based on living in the same zip code. You saw one in real distress and offerred help. No other motive. There's a lesson here... cb

A little behind but catching up starting with you tea party... first off how dare Taylor come to YOUR house after you were classy enough to invite her despite her passive aggressive behavior not to invite her to her nomination party. Second how dare she feel comfortable slamming you in your own home! Taylor says you made her feel like she was back in junior high because you exclude her, yet she was the one who didnt invite you to her event because she was mad at you. She also says that she needs you in her life as a strong woman and that you let her down and implies that this was something wrong of you. However, I was wondering if you hesitancy to completely open up to Taylor has something to do with Cedric-who, similar to Taylor, had things to share with you that made you upset and feel for him to which you responded by opening your heart and home followed by him disrespecting you and leaving you hurt. Do you think that maybe Taylors presentation to you regarding her marriage somewhat mirrors this past hurt in you and that maybe you have a guard up? Either way, it is NOT fair for Taylor to put her own self-esteem issues on you as your responsibility. You are not responsible for how she feels you "make her feel bad about herself". If thats really true then she shouldn't care so much!

Love you Lisa, I completely agree with you. Adriene tried to say that YOU were jealous of HER in her blog! It is CLEARLY the other way around. She is clearly jealous of how much people love you and how much people are growing to dislike her. She is looking for any reason to be upset with you. It is rediculous and catty. I hope she grows up.

I have to say, Lisa, it bothers me greatly when people accuse you of being vain, shallow, unfriendly, or anything of that sort. I was raised by my English grandparents and know that there is a very large difference between the English and American sense of humor...meaning the American's have none. I think you present yourself as a very kind, concerned, witty woman who handles the massive amounts of crap on her plate with dignity and humor combined. So, all those sods that say nasty things about you can piss off because they clearly have never met an English person in their lives.

Lisa, I just adore you! You are so elegant and classy. I agree with one of the posts though, I think the box invitations are a bit too much. It sounds like it is Kevin's wedding, not Pandora's. I would have to real him in quiet a bit and let him know who is doing the paying. It isn't for him to decide what you should have, etc. Anyway, I don't know how you put up with all of them turning on you when something comes back to bite them. They all talk behind everyone's back and then blame it on you. I think I would stay away from them, but if you weren't on the show I wouldn't bother watching it. Also, how old is Giggy? Why isn't he ever let walk around? That can't be good for him. I see people with Poms and they keep sweaters, etc on them and they are too warm for that with all of their hair. I keep my Yorkie shaved down and then put a sweater on him when it is cold, but otherwise he goes naked! lol. Love you Lisa. When is Pandora's wedding?

Lisa you are the epitome of a lady, the rest, sorry to say they are not, particularly the sisters. Taylor is evidente where she comes from and cannot and will not stop being what she is, I will never, have her in my house. As per Adrienne, she was one of my favorities last season, but after that incident about Pandora party in Vegas, I have lost any respect for her, that was really tacky. Love to see you on the show and hope you stay for a long time, you are not only beautiful, but soft, educated and charming a pleasure to watch.

Love you Lisa, and you didnt need to explain yourself to Aderianne about Pandora's engagement party location, what nerve she had and that was not the time or place to do it. Im sure Pandora wanted her party at a newer hipper location geared towards a younger crowd. Give Jiggy a kiss for me I love him too.
